2"bb and vibrations

I will be getting my jeep out of the body shop either tomorrow or the day after and was planning on throwing on the 2" bb lift that i bought for it this weekend. I have been reading up on some threads were people are getting vibes from installing this lift. Whats the chances that this occurs usually, does alot of people get this problem. The reason why im asking is because i just found out tonight that im being laid off and this will be my last week at work so i really cant afford to throw any money at this thing right now to fix any issues that spring up. I would really like some good advice if anybody has any. Thanks

I have a 2'' bb lift on my jeep that i put on myself during the summer and afterwards i did notice a slight diff and vibration on my jeep. It most likey will have some vibration after you install it but shouldn't be anything to worry about since its only 2 inches. the only trouble i had when i put mine on my jeep was when i went to reinstall the bumpstops in the rear. The threads on the insideto reinstall the bolts were worn and i couldn't put them back in they would slide in and i could pull them straight back out. But my jeep obviously had alot of wear underneath and rust on the underbody. ANyways back to the vibes if you get it it shouldn't be anything to worry about unless your real finicky about that kinda stuff.

I have a 2" BB and did the tranny drop to avoid any vibration. Never had a vib problem since. Or you could do a MML also which would accomplish the same thing.

how much are we talking about here, 1/4 inch, 1/2 inch or is it just keep add until you get the correct angle and your vibes go away.

Keep adding until your good works. Don't forget that you WILL need to get a front end alignment after any change in lift height. So remember to add that to the $$$.
